Matthew 6:31, “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’

This is a straight command from Jesus Christ to all His children, “Do not worry” Worry does not solve problem, it does not settle situation, but it weakens people and worsens things. To be worried is to be disturbed and anxious about thing, situation or people.

(1) It kills faith. When you allow worry, you are burring your faith alive.
(2) It distracts Christians from putting their total trust in God.
(3) It brings discouragement. Worry only shows you how impossible and terrible things are, worry can not encourage you or give you right solution, but only to make you discouraged.
(4) It weakens prayer life. Worry weakens prayer life, it shows you that prayer can’t solve the matter on ground; it tells you God is not or will not help. The major assignment of worry is to weak prayer life; when you allow worry to linger in your heart, your prayer life will be lost.
(5) It leads to sinful alternative. When worry is almost through with its assignment in a Christian’s life, there will begin suggestions of sinful alternatives; since your faith is weak, your prayer life is down, the next thing is to think of sinful alternative. That is how many Christians backslide.

{You cannot wait on God while you are worried! Worry drains and dries strength to wait on God}

(6) It destabilizes health, relationship, and zeal for God’s work.

(7) It is from Satan. Do you ever wonder where worry originates from? Well, it is not from Jesus, because Jesus warns us never to worry; worry is a spirit from Satan to steal your hope in Christ, to kill your faith and to destroy your life. Please, do not allow him.

If you are a child of God, worrying is like shooting yourself in the foot, because it only brings harms and no good.

Worry is not something that you have to invite before it comes, it will always come uninvited, because it is an emotional intruder; it will always come no matter your spiritual level and strength. But there are ways to block worry, that it will never have a chance in your life again.

From Matthew 6:25-34, we can find these solutions:
Rest On God And Resist The Devil
When things are running down, when time is running out, and when people are running here and there, you just rest on God, because God is right there with you. Never entertain devil’s suggestion of worry, but resist the devil and he will flee from you.

Matthew 6:31, 32
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.”

Pray About Everything
You have a choice: Pray or worry! You can’t do both together, because one of the most stupid things a Christian can do is to pray and worry at the same time. Do not worry after you pray. You can worry without prayer, but no need to worry after you pray. Pray and never panic again.

Philippians 4:6
“Do not worry about anything, but pray and ask God for everything you need, always giving thanks.” NCV

Best Alternative
Sometimes, worrying may seems unavoidable, but there is a better alternative for worry in every situation, no matter how tough: instead of worrying, rather watch out for the wonders of God coming on your way. Walk by faith through the Word of God, busy yourself in the work of God and wait for the best.

Make Heaven Your Priority
When you make heaven your first priority, whatever happens or does not happen in this life will not lead you to sin against God; when the kingdom of God is your priority, situation of this life will not weigh you down from doing God’s work. You have read about saints of old who kept serving and working for God despite difficulties? It was possible for them because they made heaven their primary focus.

Whatever the case may be, here is a message for you from your Lord and Savior: Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. – Jesus Christ, from Matthew 6:31-34.
